Jury selection commenced on Monday for Zachary McCaa, 27, from Caledonia in Livingston County, facing charges of murder and manslaughter over the death of his 2-month-old son last June.


Prosecutors allege that McCaa caused the infant’s death by throwing him, leading to fatal blunt force head injuries; the baby passed away in the hospital a week later.

Previously arrested in June for reckless child assault, McCaa’s charges were escalated after the infant’s death. He was indicted on September 20 with counts of second-degree murder, first and second-degree manslaughter, and child endangerment. Investigations suggest the baby had been violently shaken multiple times by McCaa.
